I think Bradley beats Rios easily. He is much faster and a much better boxer and Bradley takes a punch very well. Bradley is very good at 147 or he would not have done as well with Pacquiao as he did. As far as Pacquiao fighting Marquez to avoid a fight with Bradley I think that is ridiculous. About 95% of the fans and boxing writers thought Pacquiao won that fight by a mile. Even Pacquiao's sworn enemy, Floyd Mayweather Sr. said Pacquiao won by mile or words to that effect. If Pacquiao beats Marquez clearly he gains much respect from the many fans that thought Marquez deserved to win the third Pacquiao fight. If he beats Bradley again he gains little because damn near everyone thinks he already clearly beat Bradley.I believe Pacquiao chose to fight Marquez for those reason plus it will be a much better fight. He also picked Marquez because he pays much better and this is prize fighting. I don't even know if Bradley would accept a fight with Rios. Apparently he turn down lots of money to fight Guerrero.
